I have it in Nikon mount (so not entirely comparable) with the dock and I've had a bit of trouble with it if I'm honest. Out of the box the focus was all over the place, front focusing at one extreme and back focusing at the other.

I used Reikan FoCal to find the best microadjustment values at a variety of focus distances, wrote them down and then fired up the dock and input my values for the different focus distances that it allows you to adjust. Since doing that it has been pretty good but every now and then, at certain focus distances, it still feels a bit off.

Wow, yeah, that's what I'm afraid of.  A tack-sharp lens isn't much good if it misses focus...
